How to Report Incidents

 

Wright State students have a number of reporting options and survivors can utilize as many or as few as they choose. In all cases, survivors will be asked to describe the incident to as few individuals as practicable and will not be required to unnecessarily repeat a description of the incident. Even if you don’t want to pursue disciplinary proceedings or a criminal investigation, you have the right to access medical care, advocacy, counseling, and support. The information below and elsewhere in this website is meant to provide you information and resources so you can determine what is right for you.

Individuals who file reports will be informed of all steps the University may take to address the initial incident as well as prevent the misconduct from taking place in the future. The need for interim services will also be assessed upon report.  Wright State University provides a number of interim support services, upon request, to students who are involved in Gender-Based Harassment and Violence offenses.  These include housing and academic accommodations, campus restraining orders, counseling and other support services. No police report, disciplinary complaint or investigation need occur before this option is available.  Discretion and sensitivity will be utilized when sharing the identity of the persons involved when arranging for interim support services.  A person can access these services at any time, even if the person initially declined the service.


Confidential Reporting

You may speak confidentially to the following resources about your experience or concerns regarding sexual misconduct. These individuals are under no obligation to share your information with the Title IX Coordinator and/or a member of the TItle IX staff. A Title IX response will NOT be prompted if you speak with any of the resources below:

Counseling & Wellness

The Center for Counseling Wellness provides CONFIDENTIAL supportive mental health services to survivors of sexual violence and harassment, as well as general mental health concerns. Services include: crisis intervention; short-term therapy for individuals, couples and families; support and therapy groups; behavioral medicine; psychiatric services; an eating disorders clinic; assessments for attention deficit/hyperactivity and learning disabilities; suicide prevention training; consultation and education; and assistance and advocacy connecting community with campus offices including the Dean of Students Office.

Student Legal Services

Student Health 

The services provided at Student Health Services are comparable to those offered at a family practice setting. All professionals are certified, licensed, or registered in their respective fields. In addition to functioning as caregivers and administrators of treatment, the Student Health Services staff strive to be educators and promote prevention and wellness.


Anonymous Reporting

All anonymous reports go to the Title IX Coordinator. You may report anonymously in two ways:

  1. 1-888-353-3783
  2. wright.ethicspoint.com

Filing a Complaint 

If you are ready to file a complaint about your experience or to report any sexual misconduct concern, you may speak with the Title IX Coordinator and/or any member of the Title IX staff (Listed under the Title IX Staff tab to the right). The Title IX Coordinator and the Title IX staff will make every effort to protect your privacy and will consider requests for confidentiality on a case-by-case basis. When you speak directly with the Title IX Coordinator, a member of the Title IX staff or a responsible employee, you initiate a Title IX response. With the exception of the confidential sources listed above, most university officials with supervisory duties or remedial authority to address sexual misconduct are responsible employees. Responsible employees are required to share what they know with the Title IX Coordinator and/or a member of the Title IX staff. If you wish to discuss an incident, but are unsure of someone's duties and ability to maintain privacy, ask that person before speaking with them.
